These surreal body portraits taken by Spanish photographer Ángela Burón offer a distorted view of the human form.

The 25-year-old photographer presents the human body in a way that initially offers shock and confusion to the uninitiated viewer. The strange and surreal is on full display as the natural form is twisted, bent and reformed to create an all new understanding of human flesh. Flesh and bone is misplaced and displayed in an intriguing manipulation so beautifully displayed that the observer is simply unable to look away.

On the artist's bio, Burón states "since childhood I wanted to be an inventor." It would appear that Burón was able to achieve her goal with these surreal body portraits that create an all new understanding of how we as people are constructed and operated.
